RESEARCH METHODS revision presentation

Made for AQAPsychology A-level but could be easily adapted for other boards. This is a presentation I work through with my students while they are revising research methods - it includes over 60 slides (some with content and some with indications of a task to complete). I usually teach short sections of research methods and then get them to complete the activities in the corresponding booklet. This took me 3-4 lessons of 90 minutes each to complete it all but some could be set for homework. This includes a sample essay on designing research and a summary table for features of science which are areas students often struggle with. The corresponding booklet can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/research-methods-revision-booklet-of-activities-28-pages-aqa-psychology-11623089?theme=0
